Inspired by the true-life account of Margaret Anne Bulkley, With a
Silent Companion recounts the remarkable journey of a determined
young woman born in eighteenth-century Ireland. With her father in
debtor's prison and her mother's palsy worsening, Margaret and her
mother journey to London to seek a better future. But as each
attempt to make a living fails, their hopes are slowly abandoned.
Fearful that she and her ailing mother will be unable to support
themselves after their meager financial reserves run out, Margaret
makes the most extraordinary decision of her life. Her heart broken
by the constant threat of poverty but her spirit awakened by the
challenge of two moneyed gentlemen, she enrolls in medicine at the
renowned University of Edinburgh and, after years of dedicated
study, becomes a surgeon.
